Since Then (それ以来) is a special InuYasha manga chapter written for Shogakukan's Hero Comes Back project, a collection of special chapters for a variety of their retired series to benefit the reconstruction efforts after the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. It is a stand-alone story that takes place after Chapter 558.


  • Takes place 6 months after the end of the manga.
  • Inuyasha and Miroku work as yōkai slayers.
  • Kikyō sealed away a yōkai called Ne no Kubi before she met Inuyasha.
  • Ne no Kubi has escaped and seeks the Shikon no Tama.
  • Inuyasha killed Ne no Kubi and Kagome is able to help him without outside spiritual assistance.


Kagome has been living in the feudal era with Inuyasha for six months, and life has been peaceful. Inuyasha
Inuyasha and kagome watched the sky
and Miroku are tracking a yōkai that was released from a seal by a landslide, and discover the yōkai was originally sealed away by Kikyō. The yōkai is called Ne no Kubi and is seeking the Shikon no Tama, not realizing it is already destroyed due to being sealed away for so long. Ne no Kubi attacks Kagome, mistaking her for Kikyō, but she wounds its head with a sacred arrow and Inuyasha kills it with Wind Scar.

Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit


  • Fan-translation suggests that the name of Miroku and Sango's son is "Komori". However, it is an error since the original line reads 琥珀、子守り頼む (Kohaku, komori tanomu) which translates as "Kohaku, I'm counting on you to babysit."[1]
